As already written, when I spoke to Dan a couple of weeks ago about my background progress, he suggested that I use Maya to block out the scene first, play around with the layout and then build concept on top of it, which is what I have been doing since for the next concept-the princess' room!
My version of it is heavily inspired by Maid Marian from the Disney film 'Robin Hood';
as well as some of the designs on the interior moodboard Matt linked to me which I will post here again for convenience;
At first I was really struggling to get to grips with Maya and I started the concept art using two point perspective lines, my best attempt being;
which didn't look quite right at all..
But during Monday's lesson first of all Keith and Clym helped me out and got me working on Maya again.
This is my abysmal attempt before they stepped in..
And here are the ones after. Keith refreshed my memory about Maya; polygons and booelans etc. and while I have to say I still can't remember a lot of it, it really helped. And Clym helped me create this;
which I then added to later on to make this;
I will go over this attempt using SAI, the program I am now learning and will update soon..
